An incredible bundle that lasts ALL YEAR LONG!
The SHARP Portfolio is for any middle school ELA classroom. It includes 7 interactive activities that helps students practice skills like:
----WRITING IN CONSTRUCTED RESPONSE
---------GRAMMAR REVIEW - PARTS of SPEECH
----------CONDUCTING AN INTERVIEW
This interactive notebook is used as a student portfolio - showcasing their own work and their own thinking. This interactive notebook goes steps beyond concepts and it allows the student to practice and refine these literacy skills.
This INB has changed me as a teacher. Using this SHARP allowed me to move from the daily grind of lesson planning into becoming a curator for great texts, videos and information. I get to go hunting for relevant, challenging, and fun texts to put in front of my students.
The best part about using this SHARP portfolio is how I get to know my students better. Because they create a portfolio that shows their thinking rather than just showing the concepts that I'm giving them - I get to see how they think, what they like, their opinions, and what matters most to them. Using this system has helped me develop deeper and more meaningful relationships with my students. THIS IS WHAT EVERY MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER CRAVES - RIGHT?!
The SHARP Portfolio includes 7 activities. Each activity includes a Prezi to show your students, a teacher instruction page with details, student templates, photos of the final product and resources to help you get going.
The seven activities are:
1) Writing in Constructed Response
2) Teaching Inferences using Pictures
3) Teaching Inferences using Situation Cards
5) S.A.B. chart using video (Summarize, Analyze, Bias)
6) Daily Writes - creative bursts of writing in 3 styles
7) Grammar Review - the 9 parts of speech using metaphors
I teach these activities once in September, and then I let my students practice and perform these activities all year long. Have a great and exciting time using the SHARP Portfolio - your students definitely will!
